I know -- google is my friend :)

DB_PRIVATE
    Specify that the environment will only be accessed by a single
process (although that process may be multithreaded). This flag has two
effects on the Berkeley DB environment. First, all underlying data
structures are allocated from per-process memory instead of from shared
memory that is potentially accessible to more than a single process.
Second, mutexes are only configured to work between threads.

    This flag should not be specified if more than a single process is
accessing the environment because it is likely to cause database
corruption and unpredictable behavior. For example, if both a server
application and the Berkeley DB utility db_stat are expected to access
the environment, the DB_PRIVATE flag should not be specified.

OK - so interpreting as maybe I should reboot Linux in case another
process had its finger on the ./db folder - I did - but it made no
difference. The only session alive after the reboot and logging off my
usual self was root.

Does anyone have any advice for me?

TIA

Mike
